Trillium is a genus of perennial flowering plants native to temperate regions of North America and Asia.
The last February day was bright and freezing with the temperature -15 C. Lake Ontario is still under the ice. There are no any birds around it. While the city is sleeping and there is no any noise the frosty silence is ringing. By the early morning the only habitants of the lake shore are photographers who anxious to make some lovely sunrise pictures.
Winter is still strong enough. There are still no any evidence of warm and colourful Spring. The only hope is Sun which is warm, tender, and really promising. Good Day Sunshine!
The third day of November was the usual partly cloudy and sunny day in Toronto. There were no rain and wind. But it was the last chance to see the fall colour. Next day rain and wind washed all that beauty out. Now we have mostly grey and rainy November days. The nature is waiting for the white winter attire. My daily companion iPhone helped to save this day for your review.
The first picture is the Grenadier Pond with the reflection of the High Park trees in it.
The berries on the bush is only treat for birds for now.
Autumn trees and bushes are looking at themselves in the pond water mirror.
Only some of Maple trees still are looking gorgeous in the red decoration.
However most of them are almost bald.
Oaks are red as well but not all of them. Oaks are stronger than maples and save their leave longer on their heads.
That Maple is red and yellow and looking like a watercolor painted art under the fall sun.
It is going to be white and green very soon with the snow and pine tree. Good bye Autumn! Welcome Winter!
Modern Toronto is a typical metropolis and it is difficult to know Canada through it. There are certainly some unique features that distinguish Toronto from other large cities in the world, but the spirit of Canada located in small towns.
Peterborough is one of those places. Cute and charming town situated on the banks of Otonabee River. There are two of the most distinctive and remarkable places it the town –
Lift Lock and Del Crary Park.
Otonabee River is part of the Trent-Severn Waterway, providing a link from Lake Ontario to Lake Huron. Also, Trent Canal runs through the very eastern portion of the city and is home to the Peterborough Lift Lock the largest and highest hydraulic boat lift in the world (65 feet or 19.8 meters).
Del Crary Park is a large urban greenspace on Little Lake, located in close proximity to downtown Peterborough.
Peterborough parks, canal, alleys picturesque covered with autumn colour.
